The survival of some of these building blocks – can they be delivered to the Earth that would help seed a planet so the conditions of life can begin to exist? Peter H Schultz, AMES high velocity research lab
Every year thousands of tons of material from outer space rains down on our planet’s surface. Most of the time we’re unaware. But sometimes it can’t be ignored. Around the world people have reported finding strange matter where these meteors fall. Sometimes it’s a gelatinous goo. Other times it looks like it’s raining blood. Paranatural s1e3: Blood Rain and Star Jelly, 2010
November 28th 2001, Manchester, England ... Mera [paranormal investigator] searches for anything that could have fallen from a recent meteor shower. And finds something completely unexpected. A gelatinous blob. It has a smell often associated with meteoric rock. An odour similar to rotten eggs. ibid.
Dr Dan Rolph of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania has found hundreds of historical accounts of strange substances falling from the sky. But one story in particular stands out ... ‘Flying Saucer Just Dissolves’. ibid.
August 1994 ... A strange gelatinous rain pummels the tiny town of Oakville, Washington. ibid.
Murchison, Australia, September 28th 1969: In the morning hours residents of this coastal town see a bright ball of fire shooting through the sky. Then, moments later, it rains rocks. Scientists later collect more than ninety kilograms of meteoric material ... They find amino acids. ibid.
On the other side of the planet meteor showers bring another strange rain. July 2001, India: people hear an explosion in the sky. Then as it does every year the summer monsoon brings heavy rainfall in southern India. When the rain comes it is blood-red. ibid.
Star jelly sightings after meteor showers occur around the world. But recently many reports are coming from Scotland. ibid.
I have always felt that man is a stranger on this planet. A total stranger. I always played with the fancy maybe a contagion from outer space is the seed of man. Eric Hoffer
Every day the Earth is pelted with twenty-five tons of dust and sand-sized particles, but they burn up in our atmosphere. Extreme Universe s1e2: Collision Course, National Geographic 2010
The Asteroid Belt [is] located between Mars and Jupiter. These warm ice-bearing bodies may have the same water as Earth because they were all formed in the inner solar system which is closer to the Sun. What’s more, startling new evidence suggests that these usual comets may not only have delivered water to Earth, they may also have seeded our planet with the building blocks of life itself. The Universe s1e6: Spaceship Earth, History 2007
Could primitive life have survived a caustic environment? ibid.
Could the building blocks of life have come from somewhere else? Perhaps from an extraterrestrial object? ibid.
It’s a hot and humid July in 2001. And something very strange has happened on planet Earth. Here is southern India many villages are the focus of a possible alien invasion. It starts with rain. Red rain. The local people were horrified. Horizon: We are the Aliens? BBC 2006
The particles weren’t dust at all. They were alive. But what was this mysterious life-form? There was only one way to find out: take a look at the DNA. The results came back: there was no DNA. It was life but not as we know it. ibid.
The discovery of DNA in the red rain cells has been corroborated by another lab. Yet this recent finding has done nothing to dent Chandra’s unshakable belief that the red rain is extraterrestrial. He believes that all life in the cosmos will probably share various types of DNA. ibid.
The Earth teems with life. But billions of years ago our planet was just a ball of molten rock. Did the first earthlings rise from a chemical soup bubbling in a primordial pond, or did the seeds of life crash down from outer space? Morgan Freeman’s Through The Wormhole s1e5: How Did We Get Here? Science 2010
Life on Earth may not have been from Earth at all. ibid.
There might have been more than one genesis. Our planet may not harbour one but two trees of life. ibid.
Ever worry about picking up a bug? What if we have all caught something, something unidentifiable and of unknown origins? Not from each, but the heavens. Drops of rain could be bringing us visitors from another planet. Aliens invading our bloodlines or maybe even infecting our technology … Are aliens inside us? Morgan Freeman’s Through the Wormhole s6e2: Aliens Inside Us
Virtually every living thing on Earth contains transposons … Half of our DNA is now alien. ibid.
Panspermia: Life spreads around the universe when a comet or asteroid hits a planet. ibid.
If it is true that these [Indian Rain] are alien bugs from space, then it is an absolute clear-cut proof of panspermia. Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe
It’s known that something like one hundred tons – one hundred metric tons – of cometary debris enters the Earth’s atmosphere on a daily basis. A large amount of that, a large fraction of that, is organic. Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe
We have discovered only weeks ago that the red rain cells when they are subjected to a hundred and thirty degrees Celsius temperature in an autoclave could reproduce. Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe
The alien origin is looming large on the horizon. Red rain has been reported almost from Biblical times ... The star jelly has had a very long history. Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe
A radical theory called Panspermia suggests our ancestors are about to arrive from outer space. How the Universe Works s4e5: Dawn of Life, Discovery 2015
Now it has been suggested by other people that maybe life on Earth was brought here by a visitor from another planet. While this possibility is remote it certainly can’t be excluded on the basis of the results we have found. Dr James Lawless, In Search of Ancient Astronauts, 1973
